@jerryboyd: When did you begin following his advice and for how many months did you remain invested?
In how many different stocks did you invest?

They are in the business of publishing newsletters. Stock picking is not their forte.
Be prepared for an onslaught of mail and emails telling about all their other services once you sign up.

I purchased Jim Rickards’ and Byron King’s gold speculator subscription in the summer of 2016 for almost $1,800. Currently, I am 33% down on my investment. I am very disappointed, to say the least.

Same situation with me. I subscribed to Gold Speculator for one year and found most of the stock picks to go nowhere or down. I wasn’t going to pay another $1,750 or thereabouts for another year’s worth of speculations with the constant promise that these could be great winners if such and such happens. That such and such happening could take another 3 – 5 years and I’m out $10k by then during the wait.

Only for speculators. So far the investment results are dismal.
However, if the gold price ever takes off, this could be a spectacular performer. If not, be prepared to lose a lot of money.
Rickards is hot and he is trying to milk this for all its worth.

Recent weak performance appears to be a result of lackluster demand for gold and silver.

What one needs to keep in mind with all the different high priced newsletters published under Jim Richards name is that these are not his picks but the person he hires as ‘editor’ of each one. His Gold Speculator is run by Byron King who had two past letters (Outstanding Investments + another high priced gold letter I can’t say the name of). I lost significant $$ on both and both letters are now defunct, which should tell you something! King’s picks will take off, eventually, when the tide comes in and lifts all the ‘ships’. That’s why I didn’t… Read more »

Have you seen his new pitch? He says that on July 1st the elites will replace the dollar with a new SDR blockchain currency. Does anyone know what investment he’s talking about (besides gold, of course)?

DAI is the most likely candidate for that. They have said in the past that they will eventually segue from a $1 price target to a 1 SDR price target. I don’t think its possible the elites are deeply in on it yet, as there simply isn’t enough float for that to be true.

I lost 30% on this during my subscription from July 2016 to July 2017. When I did not renew the price kept coming down. Finally I was offered a free year if I would give my results to the TradeStops folks. I did this inJUly 2017 and as yet have not seen any free issues. It looks like now gold may be going to rise in price, and if so these junior gold mines should do well. It looks to me like a couple may be quite good, eventually, and several others are total dogs. The newsletter is well written… Read more »

Unfortunately, after subscribing to Richards’ and Byron York’s Gold newsletter, I actually followed their advice. I am now down about 33% over the last eighteen months. I’ve actually picked better gold mining stocks on my own. Their picks on the likelihood of one event or another as a catalyst for a spike in gold prices over the past year and half has been dismal. I’m not impressed. I’ve found that their picks consistently foment a kind of buying frenzy among their subscribers which results in paying a premium for the stocks they promote. Shortly after the frenzy, say, a week… Read more »

Still waiting for the rising tide to lift gold’s boat, but I agree with Jim’s thesis. I’d love to have the $10K an ounce that he hypothesizes, but I’m not holding my breath waiting for it. I think a decent rise in price is inevitable given our country’s financial situation. Right now his picks are mostly terrible, but if a couple of them make it big, who’s going to worry about those other stocks that cost less than a dollar a share? Unless you bet the rent money, and hopefully none of us are that stupid!

Writing is very good. Both Rickards and King graduated from big time law schools, they have been trained to write convincingly. Rickards will pontificate on the Macro environment, King makes the picks. It is unclear what influence Rickards has over the picks. I do find the Rickards missives to be interesting, but his big ego is often hard to take. I do respect Byron King, during the panic times of the financial crisis he was the only newsletter writer that came out and said (I’m paraphrasing) look, if things are making you nervous and you can’t sleep at night, get… Read more »
